Every day you wake up is another opportunity to pursue your dreams and begin something new. So follow your heart and make great choices everyone – always – and no doubt heed the words of our President Barack Obama, “Choose to listen not to your doubts and fears, but to your greatest hopes and highest aspirations.”
A special thanks to my photographer Dana Patrick for these amazing new pics. Have an awesome day, and whatever you do, remember to get your workout in!
Do yourself a favor and go see this film, McFarland USA. Heartfelt, inspiring and a Truly Moving Picture that’s makes anything seem possible. That’s all we’re talking about today on Tola Talks – my 30th film review and one of my most passionate shows. Kudos to Director Niki Caro and the cast & crew of this wonderful Disney classic.

This episode is all about having success with two sides of the same coin: Making the Best of your two key Senses, sight and hearing, plus doing whatever you can to Learn from the Best. With a healthy dose of inspiration from a true hero and prolific author/activist, Hellen Keller.
I was inspired today when I read this in my friend’s yoga newsletter and wanted to share it with you:
“Emptiness is the starting point. In order to taste my cup of water you must first empty your cup. My friend, drop all your preconceived and fixed ideas and be neutral. Do you know why this cup is useful? Because it is empty.” Bruce Lee
It’s simply about clearing yourself of negative energy and creating space in your being, your mind-body-spirit, to absorb new positive energies & opportunities from a neutral, white canvas-like starting point.
Easier said than done. But definitely achievable…because ANYONE can.
